2018 Carrodus Viognier

Medal One
Medal Two

Apricot flavours and a silky texture deliver oodles of weight and flavour. Tannins, rarely seen in white wines, add flavour and texture while carrying the flavour to a long lingering finish.

Adding to cart… The item has been added



Tiny yields, this fruit is hand harvested lovingly by only Yarra Yering staff, into the cool room overnight and then whole bunch pressed. Any juice not pressed from the skins is then frozen to be used in the Dry Red Wine No 2 ferment weeks later. The Viognier juice is run off to oak barrels without any clarification for primary fermentation. Largely left alone until bottling after 10 months. Only two barrels are produced.
